At the Northern RECON Training Workshop in Pasco last month, we figured out an adjustment to the CPC-1100 tripod that fixes a failure mode that has been occurring throughout the project. Over the course of the project, several spreader-arm brackets at the base of the tripod have been broken by team members trying to open overly stiff tripod legs. The fix involves loosening the three leg bolts at the top of the tripod.
and say good bye to broken tripods for the remainder of the RECON Project!!!
